About This Tour

Member presale February 28-March 5 General public sale begins March 6 Become a member to get access to this tour during presale.

Join the L.A. Conservancy for an exciting and rare opportunity to tour the historic FOX Studio Lot! Normally closed to the public, this exclusive tour led by Conservancy guides will give tourgoers the chance to amble along the original ‘streets’ and ‘boulevards’ designed as part of the principal studio’s 1928 master plan. 

The architecturally eclectic lot features everything from Egyptian-themed soundstages to a Storybook chateau, as well as art murals and sites iconic to the studio’s history. Learn more about the history of classic FOX films and see the places where stars like Shirley Temple and Marilyn Monroe spent their downtime between takes.

While predominantly focused on the exterior of buildings, participants will be taken inside the FOX scoring stage to see where soundtracks for films like THE SOUND OF MUSIC were recorded. Tourgoers will also visit the famous New York Street, the outdoor New York City streetscape used in innumerable films and television.  

Amid all the sights, tourgoers will learn how historic preservation is part of the future at FOX, and how the Conservancy works with studios, including FOX, to find common ground between the need to modernize and preserve the past.

Studio Tour at Universal Studios

Studio tours in Los Angeles for behind-the-scenes moviemaking magic

Check out these studio tours in L.A. for a behind-the-scenes look at how movies and TV shows come to life

Embark on a studio tour and you’ll discover what Angelenos already know: (Almost) everything is filmed in L.A. That quiet East Coast cul-de-sac? A fake residential block at Universal Studios. That New York cityscape? The backlot at Warner Bros. Studios. An elaborate sci-fi ship? That would be a soundstage at Sony Pictures Studios. When L.A.’s  beaches , scenic hillsides and aesthetically diverse neighborhoods can’t quite cut it, productions set up shop at one of the city’s studios—and some of the biggest ones have opened their gates for tours. From  Culver City  to  Hollywood , take a peek behind the soundstage doors with these studio tours in Los Angeles.

Been there, done that? Think again, my friend.

Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood

Warner Bros.’ guided tram tour zips through the studio’s sizeable footprint—110 acres on the Valley-side of the Hollywood Hills—with about a dozen other passengers onboard. It’s an encyclopedic tour of all types of filming locations, with a journey through the backlot’s city stand-ins and Gilmore Girls -starring residential square, as well as a stops inside a soundstage and at a few museum-caliber displays of props. Though you’ll spend some time simply navigating the sprawling grid of soundstages, you’ll also stop and venture on foot with memorable photo ops: a seat on the couch at Friends’ Central Perk or The Big Bang Theory’s  Apartment 4A, an opportunity to mount a Harry Potter broomstick and the chance to come face to face with almost every Batmobile imaginable. 

For fans of: Ellen , Conan , The Big Bang Theory , Friends , Harry Potter , Batman ,  Aquaman ,  Wonder Woman ,  Crazy Rich Asians ,  Looney Tunes

You won’t find anywhere else: A dedicated studio museum, and by far the most to see on any studio tour.

Universal Studios Hollywood Studio Tour

While Universal Studios’ tram tour is technically an amusement park attraction—which means you’ll have to stomach the hefty price of admission—it manages to combine the look of a living, working studio with entertaining theme park polish. The tour mixes live narration and pre-recorded bits as you cart through backlot sets of New York, a mutt of European villages, the Old West and familiar movie landmarks—most impressively the 747 crash site from  War of the Worlds . The majority of live filming is securely tucked away—and if it’s not, expect portions of the backlot to be chopped off of your experience—but Universal compensates with preplanned encounters that mimic special effects: a wet and fiery earthquake simulation, a sudden flash flood and that delightfully rubbery, toothy grin on the face of Bruce—a.k.a.  Jaws . While the 3-D motion simulation that replaced the iconically campy (and burned down) King Kong section is a welcome technical upgrade, the tunnel lacks the same immersion and charm of the original—the same can sadly be said for the similarly dizzying and ill-executed Fast & Furious: Supercharged segment.

For fans of: Psycho , The Fast and the Furious , all things Steven Spielberg

You won’t find anywhere else: Rubber sharks, CGI gorillas and plenty of pyro.

Up to 1hr, $109–$139 theme park admission

Sony Pictures Studio Tour

Sony Pictures Studio Tour

As you pass through the studio gates on this walking tour, you’re immediately greeted by Tony Tasset’s arching  Rainbow  sculpture—a nod to the studio’s past as the home of  The Wizard of Oz . The lot’s footprint has been significantly downsized since then, when it was known as the iconic MGM Studios; virtually all of its colorful backlot sets are now gone with the wind. But the magnolia tree-lined sidewalks and clean, white Art Deco facades provide a pleasant ambience that the other industrial-edged studios lack. A leisurely pace allows time to peer through the elephant doors of a soundstage and look out for passing celebrities. The tour skews toward contemporary productions—the bullet-riddled RV from  Breaking Bad , a stock car from  Talladega Nights  and a stop in the studios for  Jeopardy  or  Wheel of Fortune —but there are still plenty of small moments where that old moviemaking charm endures.

For fans of:   The Wizard of Oz ,  Singin’ in the Rain ,  Ben-Hur ,  Spiderman ,  Breaking Bad ,  Talladega Nights ,  Jeopardy ,  Wheel of Fortune

You won’t find anywhere else:  The acoustic bliss during a stop in a foley studio. 2hrs, $50 

Paramount Pictures Studio Tour

Paramount Pictures Studio Tour

Believe it or not, Paramount is the last major studio to keep its headquarters located in Hollywood—and the only one there to open its doors to the public. Inside the famous wrought iron gate, you’ll be treated to a guided tram tour through the prop house and a sizable New York backlot. Of particular note, there’s the open-air Blue Sky Tank, which holds almost one million gallons of water to film anything from surfing scenes to maritime disasters.

For fans of:   This Is Us, Grace and Frankie ,  Dr. Phil

You won’t find anywhere else:  A seasonal after-dark tour that takes a macabre walk through moviemaking history and the neighboring Hollywood Forever Cemetery .

What can’t you see?

What can’t you see?

Some of the biggest and most exciting studios are open to public tours, but you may be scratching your head at some big name omissions. CBS Television City (which has been solf for future redevlopment) technically doesn’t offer tours, but there are tons of  TV shows  that film there everyday for which you can secure tickets. NBC’s famous Burbank studio tour was discontinued in 2012 after most of its productions had migrated to Universal City—notable holdout  The Tonight Show  fled the lot for New York in 2014. Sunset Gower and Sunset Bronson (the locations of the original Warner Brothers and Columbia studios, respectively) are closed to the public, but you can get a fantastic oral history from the  Felix in Hollywood Tour . Similarly,  Siren Studios ,  L.A. Center Studios ,  the Jim Henson Company Lot  and the 20th Century Fox Studios are for serious business only, though all have been known to host the occasional public-facing event. And not to stomp all over your childhood dreams, but unless you know an employee, don’t plan on getting inside the gates at the Walt Disney Studios or Nickelodeon’s Burbank animation studio.

Fox Sports Debuts Fully LED, Digital-First Studio on Fox Studios Lot

L.a.-based ‘stage d’ to go live wednesday with flippin’ bats with ben verlander and alex curry.

By Brandon Costa, Director of Digital Wednesday, June 21, 2023 - 10:54 am Print This Story | Subscribe

Story Highlights

On Wednesday, Fox Sports will launch a studio set dedicated exclusively to content creation for digital and social platforms at the Fox Studios Lot in Los Angeles.

“Stage D” houses 3,000 sq. ft. of stage space and is supported by two new control rooms. It leverages state-of-the-art technologies with Fox Sports’ Studio A, the Sports Emmy Award–winning home to the broadcaster’s NFL and MLB studio coverage since 2022 .

Many of Fox Sports’ digital-first programming will call the studio home, including The Joel Klatt Show: A College Football Podcast ,  The Skip Bayless Show , State of the Union With Alexi Lalas , Out of Character With Ryan Satin , and the first show that will shoot in the space, Flippin’ Bats With Ben Verlander and Alex Curry . The content produced will stream in long-form and produce clipped short-form content for delivery across the Fox Sports App, Fox Sports’ website, and Fox Sports’ various social accounts on YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and TikTok.

The stage area is loaded with LED: eight movable walls, a movable LED stage, a movable interview stage, and even an LED floor that can move into position for multiple shooting locations. Selected LED walls are in vertical format to support both display of and creation of content for vertical-friendly platforms, such as TikTok, Instagram Stories, and other mobile-first distribution methods. All LED displays are from Planar.

There are currently 10 identified shooting positions on the stage, but, with so much of the furniture and all but one of the LED surfaces movable, the possibilities are virtually endless in how and where to produce content.

“I’m encouraging producers, directors, creatives, talent to make this space their own,” says Ricardo Perez-Selsky, senior director, digital production operations, Fox Sports . “The LED walls are on casters; the stages are on casters. Our furniture can move. We have movable lighting in the grid. Everything on the stage moves. The only limitations here are the producer’s creativity, but I want content that’s going to look different and feel different on a month-to-month basis so that [users] become ‘timeline stoppers.’ When you’re scrolling through our content on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, the Fox Sports App, you’re going to see something that looks different and new.”

fox sports studio tour

Fox Sports’ Ricardo Perez-Selsky: “The only limitations here are the producer’s creativity.”

The stage gets its power and versatility from a pair of new control rooms that leverage automation technologies via Ross Overdrive to help smaller digital crews produce the high-quality shows that the stage is capable of. Both control rooms can range from full automation to 25 staffed positions.

The central area in each control room is affectionately referred to as the “cockpit” since a single operator could essentially cut a show on their own. Depending on the size and scale of the show, a single director could switch cameras, insert graphics, manage LED elements and lighting on the set, and adjust audio all from that seat.

Stage D is supported by two control rooms, each featuring automation technology and built on a core of Ross Video gear.

Having two control rooms also enables synergies and flexibility. One is outfitted to house Home Run (or remote) productions; the other is exclusively for studio content. The Home Run model allows talent to host programs from locations on the road, but all key positions — producer, graphics, playback, engineering — can remain at the studio in Los Angeles.

In addition to Overdrive, the control rooms are based on a core of Ross gear, including the Acuity production switcher. Calrec consoles are in place for audio. With the strong emphasis on live, Fox Sports Digital delivers content via Amazon and AWS, encoding over AWS Elemental MediaLive.

Fox Sports’ approach to live digital programming is a bit unusual in an era when linear television is expected to be more “polished” and social content more “raw.” Fox Sports Digital’s award-winning work with its live Twitter show at the 2022 FIFA Men’s World Cup in Qatar and similar digital-exclusive live programming surrounding Super Bowl LVII demonstrates that “traditional” studio-based programming can succeed in a big way.

“I think things that eye-catching are going to be eye-catching regardless,” says Perez-Selsky. “That’s why we’ve incorporated the technology that we’ve done here with desks and LED walls. The studio was not designed for 16:9; it was designed for 9:16. Social producers are involved in our content, and now they’re able to film their content at an insanely high quality. We’re able to design graphics that are specific for LED elements and things that are interactive with talent. I think that’s going to come through in the overall content and is going to be a timeline stopper.”

Besides simply a beautiful, multipurpose set and a pair of control rooms, Perez-Selsky points out, perhaps the biggest benefit of the new build is the collaboration and content-sharing workflows that it established between the Fox Sports’ digital team and the linear-television side of the company. Digital producers working in the space have access to more than 2,000 cameras from productions and sports events worldwide through Fox Sports’ Video Router.

“When [Fox Sports Digital] first came into the [Fox Studio Lot] and started doing productions here in January 2021, we were still on an island,” says Perez-Selsky. “This will greatly enhance our content. It’s incredibly critical — not just the technology but also having access to the [linear] personnel. The engineers help us out on a regular basis, and that full Fox Sports backbone is now supporting digital. It’s a huge thing to leverage.”

Conceptualizing the facility was a collaborative effort by digital and linear executives. SVP, Digital Content Michael Bucklin ; Senior Manager, Technical Operations, John Marcus ; Senior Manager, Production Operations, Thomas Meason ; and Associate Manager, Technical Operations, Chris Cheshire played critical roles in the space’s development and its integration with Fox Sports headquarters infrastructure.

Fox sports unveils new state-of-the-art digital studio.

The project took nearly three months to complete and prepare for its debut, and implements emerging technologies to pair with modern consumption trends.

Derek Futterman

FOX Sports has unveiled a new state-of-the-art digital studio at its studio lot in Los Angeles, Calif., and it will be the place that showcases a variety of original digital productions. The network revealed the studio on Tuesday with the taping of Flippin’ Bats with Ben Verlander and Alex Curry featuring interviews with National Baseball Hall of Fame members John Smoltz and Cal Ripken Jr. The project took nearly three months to complete and prepare for its debut, and implements emerging technologies to pair with modern consumption trends.

The studio itself is 3000 square feet and contains 360 degrees of shooting space complete with a moving LED floor. In looking at the space, there is clear influence from FOX Sports Studio A, the home of its Major League Baseball and National Football League coverage. FOX will look to refresh the brand of its growing digital portfolio through the space, which includes The Joel Klatt Show , State of the Union and The Skip Bayless Show among other programs.

“It was during the pandemic and we were doing all of digital content out of my garage,” Ricardo Perez-Selsky, senior director of digital production operations for FOX Sports , told Barrett Sports Media. “I had actually built a small control room out of my garage in Santa Monica, and we were facilitating all of our digital shows and FS1 programming out of that garage.”

FOX Sports’ digital department was assigned space on the FOX Sports lot in January 2021, a seminal moment for the growing sector of the company. Today, it is responsible for taping about 30 episodes per week and will now be able to minimize the setup and breakdown time required for production. Moreover, the studio is designed to be easily adapted to produce new programming at a moment’s notice and primarily operates with LED displays. In total, the studio has eight movable LED walls, a movable stage and set furniture designed to be repositioned.

“It really gives us maximum flexibility and versatility so that we can create content that’s going to be different,” Perez-Selsky said, “[and] stop you when you’re scrolling on your timeline. All of this content is obviously going to live on our social channels as well as the FOX Sports app.”

Most of FOX Sports’ digital content is produced at a 16:9 aspect ratio conducive for viewing in a horizontal orientation. Rather than crop and zoom the content for vertical viewing, FOX Sports designed the new studio space with vertical (9:16) content in mind. After all, younger generations are consuming this type of content more regularly than some linear programming as the popularity of streaming continues to grow. In fact, the most recent Gauge Report by Nielsen Media Research demonstrates that streaming encompasses 36.4% of daily television consumption for P2+ and the rise of free ad-supported television platforms (FAST) including FOX Corporation-owned Tubi.

The landscape of sports media contains various programs that utilize remote production, including First Take on ESPN. While there have been advancements in technology that more effectively facilitate these shows, Perez-Selsky believes in the value of in-person production and the chemistry it engenders.

“Nothing is really going to compare to getting people together, but being able to physically interact with your set; physically interact with things on an LED wall or on an LED floor…. That’s what you kind of miss out of these remote-style productions,” Perez-Selsky said. “….If everybody else is doing remote production or Zoom-style shows for whatever reason, that’s another way that our content’s going to be able to cut through.”

fox sports studio tour

The control room within the space has direct access to the company’s video router, which gives the team the ability to view over 2,000 cameras simultaneously. Home run production is also possible through the space, expanding the capabilities of the facility to power remotes and stream graphics.

Furthermore, the space can be fitted to include various producers, associate producers and graphics operators or, conversely, contain one director operating everything themselves. It is a contemporary, modern facility with a wide array of capabilities that those within the company view as an important step to enhancing its content and making it distinct in the saturated media ecosystem.

“I’m very bullish on it,” Perez-Selsky said. “I’m hoping to fill this studio seven days a week [with] multiple shows a day [and] just increase the amount of production – not just on the quantity side, but on the quality side. We’ve grown a lot in three years. Three years ago, producing shows out of my garage and everybody in Zoom boxes, where now being able to have a 360-degree space where, really, the possibilities are endless.”

“Rickwood Field is going to bring the best out in us if we let it, but for me, it’s not really scripting too much of the night.”

Jake Peavy

When Jake Peavy was dealt to the San Francisco Giants just ahead of the trading deadline during the 2014 Major League Baseball season, he was welcomed to the organization with open arms. Throughout his preceding years in the major leagues, largely spent with the San Diego Padres and Chicago White Sox, he established himself as a premier pitcher with an ability to lead his team to victory.

Peavy ended up being a pivotal piece for the Giants down the stretch run as the team positioned itself to secure its third World Series championship in the span of six seasons. While in the clubhouse, he had the chance to converse with Hall of Fame outfielder Willie Mays and developed a friendship with him that continued after his career ended two years later.

Peavy regarded it an honor to speak with Mays and longtime Giants clubhouse attendant Mike Murphy about the game of baseball and life in general. Peavy is from Mobile, Ala. while Mays grew up in nearby Westfield, Ala., a short distance away from historic Rickwood Field. Mays had played at the ballpark as a teenager, suiting up as an outfielder for the Birmingham Black Barons of the Negro American League. His talent was palpable and left an indelible mark on the game of baseball, accompanied by an aura and sense of humility that continued throughout the rest of his major-league career spanning over two decades.

“I had a great relationship with the two of them and sat in that office many days, and we talked about being from Alabama,” Peavy said. “I talked about [his] Rickwood Field days and Willie starting being in high school and not being able to go on the road and Willie’s father.”

Mays passed away peacefully among loved ones on Tuesday afternoon at the age of 93, a devastating loss of a sports icon synonymous with the game of baseball. On Thursday night, Rickwood Field, the ballpark in which Mays began his professional career, will host a Major League Baseball game for the first time when the San Francisco Giants face the St. Louis Cardinals. Earlier in the week, Mays released a statement divulging that he could not attend the game this year and emphasized that his heart would be with everyone honoring the Negro League ballplayers, hoping that it would be a source of enjoyment and inspiration for children.

The league will honor Mays’ life and legacy this week at Rickwood Field, with the inaugural event serving as a landmark to recognize the impact he made on the game and society at large. Peavy will be on set for MLB Tonight alongside host Greg Amsinger and analysts Chris Young and Adam Wainwright to break down the action on the field and also bring viewpoints and knowledge pertaining to the setting and its relevance in the history of the sport.

“I think the initiative is to spread the message of paying homage,” Peavy said. “I think that so often in today’s fast-moving society, we lose sight of learning from our ancestors and people who came before us and really respecting them.”

As an analyst with MLB Network, Peavy feels a gravity and responsibility to contribute to the growth of the game by being part of the conversation and using his platform to benefit the next generation.

“The fact that this game is direct homage at the history of Rickwood Field [and] the history of the Negro Leagues, which now needs to be more prevalent and that story needs to be told – it hasn’t accurately been told and [put] out there,” Peavy said. “You’re talking about Josh Gibson now, the new Babe Ruth, the most famous and the best statistical player that we’ve ever seen, and we’ve got to talk and tell that story to the new-age kids.”

Throughout his major-league career, Peavy gained respect for the media and became more cognizant about how sports teams and events are covered. Rick Sutcliffe was his first pitching coach with the San Diego Padres and later transitioned into a media career. Former Padres Hall of Fame outfielder Tony Gwynn became a color commentator after playing as well. A few years after Peavy retired, he became part of the MLB Network team and began appearing across programming. On the shows, he articulated his esoteric knowledge and thoughts on the game while maintaining relationships around the sport.

“Your uniqueness and the perspective… is what’s going to draw people to you – the authenticity of that – that’s where I’m at,” Peavy said. “I don’t want people to think that I’m lying to them on television [because] what I say, I’ve done some research behind and then I believe it. Whether it’s right or wrong, it’s my opinion and here it comes, and there’s some thought that’s been [somewhat] behind it.”

Hello, Rickwood Field. ❤️ #MLBatRickwood — MLB (@MLB) June 19, 2024

Over his two years on the airwaves, Peavy has grown to learn the nuance of television operations and perceives the baseball elements of the role as second nature. Being cognizant of the synchronicity across programs and how to compendiously articulate a message to the audience has been part of the learning curve and facets of the role in which he feels he has improved. Peavy will seek to blend his discernment of working in sports media with his experience visiting and playing at Rickwood Field to serve as an asset on the seminal broadcast.

“I love the game of baseball and I’m passionate about it and I want to grow it, so I’m really looking to take another step forward,” Peavy said. “I’ve done this at a high level at something else, baseball, and was able to win a Cy Young [Award] and to be a part of a World Series championship, so I want to put that same effort and focus into being a media member and really just give my best effort.”

Mobile, Ala. is the hometown of five members of the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. Hank Aaron, Willie McCovey, Satchel Paige, Ozzie Smith and Billy Williams encompass this pantheon, and there are numerous other athletes and fans that have had the privilege to step foot into Rickwood Field. While Thursday night’s game is critical in the tight National League playoff race, the contest is also a fundamental reflection on the past, honoring those who paved the way for posterity to prosper and cultivate a love of the game.

“Rickwood Field is going to bring the best out in us if we let it, but for me, it’s not really scripting too much of the night,” Peavy explained. “Letting it be about what it is and feeding off that emotion in a nice way for it to manifest there in front of us kind of will be the biggest challenge.”

The number represents a 61% increase from Game 5 last year when it was the Las Vegas Golden Knights and the Florida Panthers.

Barrett Sports Media

Game 5 of the NHL Stanley Cup Final between the Edmonton Oilers and the Florida Panthers, which saw the Oilers win their second straight game of the series, drew 8.5 million viewers across North America. The series as a whole is now averaging 7.2 million viewers across North America, which is up 64% over the 2023 Stanley Cup Final.

The 8.5 million viewers for Game 5 was the total across ABC, ESPN Platforms, CBC, SN and TVA Sports. The number represents a 61% increase from Game 5 last year when it was the Las Vegas Golden Knights and the Florida Panthers.

Game 1 and Game 4 of the series drew just over 7 million viewers while Game 2 drew 6.8 million and Game 3 had a North American audience of 6.5 million viewers.

Florida had a 3-0 lead in the best of seven series before Edmonton came storming back in Game 4 with an 8-1 victory. A more competitive Game 5 saw Edmonton score 5 goals and take a 5-3 win.

Game 6 of the series will be played Friday night at 8 p.m. ET and if a Game 7 is necessary, it would be played Monday June 24. All games will be on ABC and on ESPN+.

The Boston Celtics secured their 18th NBA Championship with a win over the Dallas Mavericks on Monday night. Boston now has the most championships in the history of the NBA. Game 5 was especially a hit on ABC television as the game broadcast averaged 12.22 million viewers. That represented the most-watched game of the NBA Finals. Viewership of the matchup peaked at 13.28 million viewers on the night and also set a record for the largest share of audience within the People 18-34 demographic ever.

Total viewership of the NBA Finals on ABC averaged 11.315 million viewers across the five-game series, according to Anthony Crupi of Sportico in a post on X. The NBA Finals matchup between the Denver Nuggets and Miami Heat also went five games last year and averaged 13.08 million viewers. The NBA Countdown program, which featured host Malika Andrews and analysts Stephen A. Smith, Michael Wilbon and Bob Myers, along with guest analysts Josh Hart (games 1-2), Paul George (games 3-4) and Julius Randle (Game 5) averaged 4.02 million viewers through the series.

The Walt Disney Company (ESPN/ABC) is entering its final season within its existing media rights agreement with the National Basketball Association. The league is reportedly formalizing new media rights contracts with Disney, NBCUniversal and Amazon’s Prime Video with a collective value of $76 billion over the term of the deal.

Disclosure:  While our recommendations are always unbiased, we may receive a small share of sales through some of the links below at no cost to you. See the  full text .


Interestingly enough, there are quite a few differences between the tours offered at each studio, and that should make it easier to figure out which tour best fits your expectations.

Ticket prices vary from $62 per person to literally thousands of dollars.

However, 3 of the tours, Warner Bros., Sony Pictures, and Universal Studios are included for free or at a lower cost in several tourist attraction passes. 

It's also worth noting that the length of these tours can run from roughly an hour to almost a week.

With all of that said, let's start talking about what each movie studio offers with their tours.

  • Warner Bros.
  • Sony Pictures
  • Universal Studios
  • Paramount Pictures
  • Adventures by Disney: Disney Backstage

At the bottom of this post , we share some thoughts and opinions from members of our Los Angeles Travel Tips group on Facebook.

Our group comprises roughly 9,000 locals (like our tour guides), tourists, returning visitors, and newbies to LA.

You don't need to be a member to read the posts, comments, and recommendations.


Below is a summary of our post on Warner Brothers Studio tours , where we also provide tips on planning your trip.

If you're in the market for a somewhat normal tour on the backlot, this might be one of your best bets.

In addition to seeing movie sets and sound stages from some of the most notable movies in film history, you'll also have the opportunity to enjoy a few specific activities.

  While on this movie studio tour, you'll be able to re-create a famous scene from the hit television show Friends , climb aboard Harry Potter 's broomstick, and even create your own Batmobile.

Warner Bros. even offers an interactive sound stage that explores the entire process of making a film from start to finish.

At three hours in length, this tour is probably the longest duration of all of the options in Hollywood.

  • $70/adult | $60/child
  • Availability: Thursday - Monday
  • Hours: Every half hour from 9 am - 3:30 pm
  • Duration: 3 hours
  • Available in both English and Spanish
  • Click here for more information .

With an overall score of 4.5 out of 5 stars , it's fair to say that this Hollywood studio tour is very well rated ( read reviews here ).

Some guests have gone so far as to suggest that this trip is worth every single penny.

Visitors were typically very happy with their tour guides, referring to them as both friendly and informative. 


This might be the most affordable movie studio tour in Hollywood, and it's also one of the most historic. Do note, that is is a walking tour.

While on this tour, you'll see the sound stages where they recorded classics such as The Wizard of Oz and superhero flicks like Spider-man .

Additionally, you'll have the opportunity to see where Jeopardy! and Wheel of Fortune are recorded.

Although they don't make any promises, there's always a chance that you'll run into someone famous on this active studio back lot!

They also offer a premium tour which includes transportation via golf cart, access to the Sony Museum, a free souvenir photo, a complimentary beverage, and lower prices at the Sony Studio Store.


  • $55 per person | $150 for the Premium tour
  • Availability: Monday – Friday at 10:30 am, 1:30 pm and 2:30 pm
  • Duration: 2 hours

Tip: Admission is usually included for free with the purchase of at least one Los Angeles tourist pass .

With an overall score of 4 out of 5 stars on TripAdvisor, it's clear that this is a pretty popular Hollywood studio tour.

Customers really appreciated the opportunity to see several historic filming locations and learn a lot about the process of making a movie.

Although some reviewers were unhappy that this is a walking tour, others simply appreciated the opportunity to see where film history was made.


This is where things get interesting, as Universal Studios has essentially made their tour one of the services offered at their amusement park.

In other words, you need to buy a ticket for Universal Studios Hollywood in order to experience this studio tour.

Clocking in at only one hour in length, this is definitely the shortest studio tour available. Check out this video of Stephen Spielberg giving a tour of the site.

In addition to seeing the back lot, you'll also experience attractions such as the Jaws ride, King Kong 360 in 3D, Bates Motel and Fast & The Furious : Supercharged.

Although it will cost more to take this tour, it's worth noting that your ticket lasts all day and guarantees access to all of the rides. 

  • $119-$139/adult | $109-$129/child
  • Availability: Daily from 8 am - 6 pm
  • Duration: 1 hour
  • Click here for ticket information .

TIP:   Universal Studios Hollywood is included for free with the purchase of a tourist pass. Read about all the opportunities for deals in our full post .

Despite the higher price tag, this movie studio tour has still received quite excellent ratings ( read reviews here ). The overall Universal Studios Hollywood experience has a score of 4.7 out of 5 stars .

A few visitors have even suggested that this trip around the studio is worth the price of admission.

Although most customers feel that the ticket price is a bit high, even the critics can't deny that they had a blast. 


Unlike the other movie studios, Paramount Pictures offers three different studio tours.

The main tour is 2 hours long and covers quite a lot of ground on the backlot.

However, if you want to experience more, their VIP tour lasts for 4 ½ hours and includes access to several additional areas.

The VIP tour also provides a gourmet lunch at a unique location in the studio.

Alternatively, you can also choose a 2 ½ hour night tour that reveals a lot of historic locations such as notable theaters and original film vaults.

No matter which option you choose, you'll learn a lot about the history of Paramount.

  • $65 for the studio tour | $215 for the VIP tour
  • Availability of Studio tour: Mon-Fri, every half hour from 9 AM - 3:30 PM
  • Availability of VIP tour: Mon, Wed, Fri at 9:30 AM
  • Duration of Studio tour: 2 hours
  • Duration of VIP tour: 4 ½ hours
  • Click here for additional information .

Reviews for the Paramount Pictures Studio tours are very positive, averaging a rating of 4 ½ out of 5 stars on TripAdvisor. 

Some visitors referred to the excursion as a movie buff's dream, while others were just impressed with how much they learned and discovered.

Some reviewers indicated that Paramount alters the tour slightly depending on the season, ensuring a nice variety of topics and locations to cover no matter when you decide to buy a ticket.


You had to figure that Disney was going to be a little more expensive, but the actual cost of this week-long experience might shock you.

To be fair, the package includes meals and accommodation at both the Loews Hollywood Hotel and Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa.

This Disney backstage adventure includes a tour of the Walt Disney Studios & Archives, an Imagineering tour, a Hollywood walking tour, and a tour of the Jim Henson Company.

Most of these tours are only available via this week-long package. The entire itinerary takes six days to complete, and it will keep you busy with plenty of fun activities from start to finish. 

  • $4,999 for Adults | $4,749 for Children
  • Availability: 2-4 times per month
  • Duration: 6 days
  • Hotel accommodation included
  • 11 Meals included
  • VIP Disneyland ticket included

As you can probably imagine, the testimonials for this experience are quite positive ( read reviews here ).

Some guests even noted that they made friends with their tour guides and continue to stay in touch with them to this very day.

Additionally, customers also appreciated the opportunity to see some behind-the-scenes areas that bring the history of Walt Disney to life.

One visitor even suggested that this trip allowed them to become kids again as they explored secret and wonderful locations at the happiest place on earth.


If you're looking for a better price on these tours and other activities in Hollywood, you might want to consider one of the following combo packages.

Studios like Warner Bros. and Universal often work with tour companies to provide their services at lower prices.

There are several options to mull over, and almost all of them provide additional tours and services.

If you plan on spending more than one day in Hollywood, these combo deals are definitely worth a look.


There's a reason that this is one of the premier attraction passes in Los Angeles.

In addition to offering access to a variety of notable locations, they also provide admission to some studio tours.

In particular, you can enjoy the Universal Studios tour, the Warner Bros. Studio tour and (sometimes) the Sony Pictures Studio tour with one version of this pass or another.

The Warner Bros. Studio tour is currently only offered with their Explorer Pass, and you'll need to purchase at least a 3-Day All-Inclusive pass to get admission to the Universal Studios tour .

Given that this tourist pass also supplies tickets to Six Flags Magic Mountain and Knott's Berry Farm, it's fair to say that the Go City Los Angeles All-Inclusive Pass could be a real bargain.

  • $109 for 1-day pass
  • $164 for 2-day pass
  • $284 for 3-day pass
  • $344 for 4-day pass
  • $374 for 5-day pass
  • $434 for 7-day pass
  • $99 for 2 choices
  • $119 for 3 choices
  • $144 for 4 choices
  • $154 for 5 choices
  • $189 for 7 choices
  • This attraction pass is available every day of the week
  • Includes up to 3 movie studio tours

Read our post comparing the different tourist attraction passes available in Los Angeles.


If you're looking for transportation to and from each movie studio tour, the following services are available.

The advantage of these combo deals is that you won't have to pay for parking, gas, or car rental in order to visit each location.

Hotel pickup and drop-off are included with each package.

Take your time and enjoy the studio tour without having to worry about anything else!

  • Not currently available as of January 2024

Universal Studio Tours Sign


These combo deals provide both a celebrity home tour and a movie studio tour.

Each option includes transportation not only around Hollywood but also to and from the studios.

While some of these services use a mini-bus, others drive you around town in a luxury sedan or an SUV.

Each company offers both hotel pickup and drop-off.

Expect these outings to last for between 6-8 hours on average.

  • Warner Bros. Studio Tour & Movie Star Homes Tour (Starline Tours) - $119/Adults | $99/Children
  • Alternatively, we offer our own self-guided celebrity homes tour .

This might be a good way to save even more money if you don't mind doing a bit of driving around Hollywood and Beverly Hills.


While we provide the details of what each tour offers, costs, and other information, here you can see what members of our Los Angeles Travel Tips group on Facebook have to say.

There are plenty of fans of the Warner Brothers tour.

Fox Sports begins filming at new L.A. digital studio

fox sports studio tour

Fox Sports has begun filming in its new digital studio at the Fox Studios Lot in L.A., the culmination of three months of construction and a vision to enhance the home of the platform’s lineup of digital original productions. “I was blown away with just the fact that you could even have a studio that looks like what we now have,” said “Flippin’ Bats” host Ben Verlander , who debuted the new space with a Tuesday taping of his show alongside co-host Alex Curry . “It’s so versatile.”

The new studio, which is 3,000 square feet and includes 360 degrees of shooting space and two new control rooms, shares tech synergies with Fox Sports’ 5,000-square-foot Studio A in L.A., which debuted in 2022 and is the primary home of Fox’s NFL and MLB coverage. It features eight movable LED Walls, one moveable LED stage and one moveable interview stage. “We wanted to keep growing because our video podcast network was growing and we’d started to tape more and more,” Fox Sports Sr Director/Digital Production Operations Ricardo Perez-Selsky  said. “We were getting to a point where set flips were just taking too much time. Doing 30-plus tapings a week at this point, it was just too costly. With the new studio, flip times have basically gone to zero.”

The space’s vertical LED elements make it optimized for social videos that emphasize vertical over horizontal, a key consideration as Fox Sports looks to create content that “stops you when you're scrolling on your timeline,” Perez-Selsky said. “We're able to do a lot of different looks across our content now, more so than we ever have been before, and I think that that's a big determinant in catching audiences’ eyes on our platforms.”

Leads on the project included Perez-Selsky , SVP/Digital Content Michael Bucklin  and Sr Manager/Technical Operations John Marcus . In addition to “Flippin’ Bats,” the studio is home to four other shows -- “The Joel Klatt Show: A College Football Podcast,” “The Skip Bayless Show,” “State of the Union with Alexi Lalas ,” and “Out of Character with Ryan Satin .”

Fox Stage 9

Built in 1928.

This stage has a bathroom/restroom added to the side of it (where other stages have the facilities built in). One of the productions that used this stage long-term was M*A*S*H between 1972 and 1983 – the cast were fed up having to walk to the nearest restroom, so when contracts came to be renewed, some of the actors made it a condition that a restroom must be built onto the stage.

Savvino-storozhevsky monastery and museum.

Savvino-Storozhevsky Monastery and Museum

Zvenigorod's most famous sight is the Savvino-Storozhevsky Monastery, which was founded in 1398 by the monk Savva from the Troitse-Sergieva Lavra, at the invitation and with the support of Prince Yury Dmitrievich of Zvenigorod. Savva was later canonised as St Sabbas (Savva) of Storozhev. The monastery late flourished under the reign of Tsar Alexis, who chose the monastery as his family church and often went on pilgrimage there and made lots of donations to it. Most of the monastery’s buildings date from this time. The monastery is heavily fortified with thick walls and six towers, the most impressive of which is the Krasny Tower which also serves as the eastern entrance. The monastery was closed in 1918 and only reopened in 1995. In 1998 Patriarch Alexius II took part in a service to return the relics of St Sabbas to the monastery. Today the monastery has the status of a stauropegic monastery, which is second in status to a lavra. In addition to being a working monastery, it also holds the Zvenigorod Historical, Architectural and Art Museum.

Belfry and Neighbouring Churches

Located near the main entrance is the monastery's belfry which is perhaps the calling card of the monastery due to its uniqueness. It was built in the 1650s and the St Sergius of Radonezh’s Church was opened on the middle tier in the mid-17th century, although it was originally dedicated to the Trinity. The belfry's 35-tonne Great Bladgovestny Bell fell in 1941 and was only restored and returned in 2003. Attached to the belfry is a large refectory and the Transfiguration Church, both of which were built on the orders of Tsar Alexis in the 1650s.

To the left of the belfry is another, smaller, refectory which is attached to the Trinity Gate-Church, which was also constructed in the 1650s on the orders of Tsar Alexis who made it his own family church. The church is elaborately decorated with colourful trims and underneath the archway is a beautiful 19th century fresco.

Nativity of Virgin Mary Cathedral

fox sports studio tour

The Nativity of Virgin Mary Cathedral is the oldest building in the monastery and among the oldest buildings in the Moscow Region. It was built between 1404 and 1405 during the lifetime of St Sabbas and using the funds of Prince Yury of Zvenigorod. The white-stone cathedral is a standard four-pillar design with a single golden dome. After the death of St Sabbas he was interred in the cathedral and a new altar dedicated to him was added.

The Palace of Tsar Alexis was built in the 1650s and is now one of the best surviving examples of non-religious architecture of that era.
